Fox News Poll: Voters' mood sours, 56 percent say Trump tearing country apart

Voter satisfaction with the direction of the nation is down by double digits, as a majority says President Donald Trump is tearing the country apart.

Continue Reading Below

That’s according to the latest Fox News Poll.

The number of voters happy with how things are going in the country is down 10 percentage points since April and stands at just 35 percent. It hasn’t been that low since 2013. At the same time, dissatisfaction jumped to 64 percent -- an 11-point increase.

That shift is not, as is often the case, tied to the economy. Positive views on the economy are higher than in more than a decade: 36 percent say it is in either “excellent” (6 percent) or “good” (30 percent) shape. The last time conditions were rated this positively was August 2004.

The same isn’t true for Trump. His job ratings are increasingly negative -- and 56 percent feel Trump’s “tearing the country apart,” versus 33 percent who say he’s “drawing the country together.”

Damn, dude, that's a FOX poll!!!

Stray Cats - Pennsylvania 6 - 5000

Brian Setzer salutes Glenn Miller.

With Stray Cat class and style.

"Alton Glenn Miller (March 1, 1904 – missing in action December 15, 1944) was an American big band musician, arranger, composer, and bandleader in the swing era. He was the best-selling recording artist from 1939 to 1943, leading one of the best known big bands. Miller's recordings include "In the Mood", "Moonlight Serenade", "Pennsylvania 6-5000", "Chattanooga Choo Choo", "A String of Pearls", "At Last", "(I've Got a Gal In) Kalamazoo", "American Patrol", "Tuxedo Junction", "Elmer's Tune", and "Little Brown Jug". This is more than Elvis Presley (18 No. 1s, 38 top 10s) and The Beatles (20 No. 1s, 33 top 10s) had in their careers. While he was traveling to entertain U.S. troops in France during World War II, Miller's aircraft disappeared in bad weather over the English Channel."

So I bought a purse...

Actually, a "sling bag", perfect for bus - subway - train riding.

If it is a womens bag, I don't give a shit, as it is black and not obviously so. It is very secure, my primary concern. It looks unisex to me.

Bought it at the S.A. for $3, it is like brand new.

Inside, however, was a suprise.

A United Airways pin, and a pair of bobby pins attached to a small elastic band.

Handcuff picks?

The spook left them in there...

Be sure to have proper clothing in your survival kit

Stilettos can give you the extra visibility to see over small obstacles.

Just don't get in any inflatable rafts.

Ciggies in NYC now $13 bucks a pack

New York boosted the minimum price of a pack of cigarettes by 24 percent to $13 and placed a cap on the number of tobacco sellers, part of the city’s biggest crackdown on smoking in more than a decade.

The anti-tobacco moves came in the form of a seven-point package of laws that Mayor Bill de Blasio, D, signed Monday. The measures create a retail license fee for sellers of electronic cigarettes and almost double the licensing fee for tobacco retailers to $200. The city is also requiring all apartment buildings of three or more units to create explicit smoking policies, while banning smoking in all common areas.

What is it with musicians and plane crashes?

Pennsylvania 6-5000 was the phone number of the Hotel Pennsylvania in NYC.

They are trying to save her from demolition.

Captain Glenn Miller performed there a lot.


Cafe Rouge -

The Cafe Rouge is one of the most famous and historic rooms in the Hotel Pennsylvania. At the time of its creation, it was the largest hotel restaurant in the world. During its heyday, the Cafe Rouge hosted musical performances featuring artists such as Duke Ellington and The Glenn Miller Orchestra. Glenn Miller was a frequent guest of the hotel and his band’s song, “Pennsylvania 6-5000,” is a tribute to the hotel’s phone number. The Hotel Pennsylvania uses the same number today; according to the hotel, it is the oldest continuing phone number in New York City."
